Christmas dinner? Why not have a three-course Christmas Tinner instead

Yes, this does exist.

And yes, you'd have to be an absolute mad man to try one.


A few years back, GAME decided to solve the ever-present problem of what to do if you've been gaming so hard that you simply cannot make time to eat.

This, it seems, is a genuine issue for many gamers who find that - particularly on Christmas day - they cannot find the time to consume food.

Because they are too busy gaming.

Well, lucky for them that this is no long an issue that they'll need to be bothered with because GAME have only gone and relaunched their iconic, intriguing, delicious (?) Christmas Tinner.

But what is a Christmas Tinner? we hear you wail?

It's basically a three-course meal comprised of 12 layers of food all stuffed together in one handy to open and eat from tin.

Never leave the comfort of your man cave again. Simply crack open this bad boy, lash the headphones back on, and away you go.


And yes, there is a vegan option.

The regular old Christmas Tinner is comprised of the following layers of food, ranging from a starter to a pudding.

The top layer is made of scrambled egg and bacon and this sits above a layer of fruity mincemeat. The middle layers combine turkey and potatoes, roast carrots and other trimmings before being finished off by a layer of Christmas pudding.

Yep, all of that in one tin. Delightful.


The vegetarian Christmas Tinner also has 12 layers but switches out scrambled eggs and bacon for gingerbread pancakes and the traditional turkey for a nut roast.

It also includes veggie pigs in blankets and a yule log and Toblerone for dessert.

The vegan option also has (you guessed it) 12 layers and kicks off with scrambled tofu and tempeh bacon before landing into a mushroom wellington.


Dessert includes a vegan chocolate cake and custard.

There really is no excuse to exit the game, is there?

"The original Christmas Tinner has been so popular with gamers over the last several years that this year we've been inundated with requests for a vegan or vegetarian alternative," said Emma from GAME.

"There are now 3.5 million vegans in the UK and we have had to respond to the shift in consumer behaviour habits and demand and make sure our products are appealing to all."


Any chance we could get a few of these sent over then, or?
